Organizing the kids bathroom

I took some time to organize under the bathroom sink in the kids bathroom.

I used to store all of the twin sized sheets under the sink and then had a basket on the sink to store things like deodorant, hair gel, saline, etc. This worked but it's a lot of clutter. I decided to put all of the twin sized sheets with my queen sized sheets after down sizing. I had tons of both sizes but some pieces were missing. Why was I keeping partial sets? I took the partials to the garage to use as drop cloths for painting and/or shop cloths. 

I went to the Dollar Tree and bought 2 baskets, different colors, and got little tubs that were 3 for $1. Eve's basket has deodorant, fingernail brush, dental floss, acne cream and Noxzema wipes (in the little tub), and a cup with her toothbrush and toothpaste in it. When going through the cabinet to find cups to use for rinsing, I couldn't find 2 alike that I already had and liked until I ran into the boot cups from the Dixie Stampede, haha. Xander's basket has hair gel, body spray, deodorant, saline, contacts case, dental floss, acne cream and Clearasil wipes (in the little tub), and his boot cup with his toothbrush and toothpaste in it. 

Now for the inside of the cabinet doors, I put their travel bags. We keep Eve's packed with a brush, travel toothbrush, travel toothpaste, and a glasses case for sleep overs. I have kept these on a hook on the back of the bathroom door for a long time but it just didn't look good so I bought 2 hooks and hung them on the inside of the cabinet doors. Now they are out of the way but still handy for when we need them quickly.

Now for some pics:
Before: top of sink, see that annoying basket!

After: no more basket!

Before: under the sink with all the sheets.

After: Xander on the left and Eve on the right. Much neater now!

That look's so much better. Now to get the bathroom repainted and looking prettier and neater!

  1. Love the dollar tree for organizing stuff! Who has tons of money to spend on bins and things that just get put into closets or behind closed doors anyway?!
